Husband and wife dub artists Peaking Lights have announced the release of their third full-length album Lucifer. Despite the sinister overtones of the title, the work, according to a press release, “represents the start of something new. ‘All of our record titles have come to us in dreams, daydreams and epiphanies.” says [Aaron] Coyes. ‘Lucifer sat so strong with us. It means “Venus, bearer of light” and is the first sign of the sunrise. There are some major astrological and astronomical events involving Venus in this year of 2012.’”

Recorded in Brooklyn at Gary’s Electric studio over the course of a month is a supposedly the record is a “nocturnal version” of the band’s sound. Adds Coyes, “‘The songs on Lucifer, by most people that have heard them, so far conjour a night time version of previous works, music to soundtrack the moonrise to the sunrise. To Indra and I, though there are similarities to earlier recordings, this stands on its own its changed us, or maybe we were already changed when we wrote it and it is that cathartic release. There was a new approach to recording our rhythms and we were able to see thru many more influences. To us this record is about play and playfulness, unconditional love, rhythms and pulses, creation and vibration we are really happy to share these recordings!’”

Lucifer is out June 19 via Mexican Summer in the U.S. and Weird World worldwide. You can check out snippets of the new material through a mixtape sampler below.
